Come to this BOF to learn about how you can apply Mylyn and task-focused programming to your entire workday. This will be an interactive BOF where we discuss, demonstrate and dissect the various Mylyn integrations in use today. If there is any integration for a tool or process that you are lacking, this is a great place to voice your demands. Based on audience interest, we can cover best practices for working in Eclipse with the following languages, frameworks, and tools: Bamboo, Bugzilla, C/C++, CollabNet, Crucible, Java, JIRA, Firefox, Gmail, Outlook, PHP, Rally, Spring Framework, Subversion, Trac and more.
Mik Kersten is the CEO of Tasktop Technologies, lead of Mylyn and member of the Eclipse Architecture Council and Board of Directors. While on the AspectJ team at Xerox PARC, Mik implemented the first aspect-oriented programming tool support and co-created the AspectJ and AJDT projects on Eclipse. He then created Mylyn and the Task-Focused Interface during his PhD at the University of British Columbia. Mik likes building tools that offload our brains and make it easier to get creative work done. He is a frequent speaker at developer conferences and was recently recognized in JavaOne Rock Star hall of fame.

Steffen Pingel is a software developer at Tasktop Technologies. When he is not riding his bike in the beautiful mountains surrounding Vancouver he enjoys working on Mylyn-based tools that keep developers focused and productive. He became a committer on the project in 2006 while completing his degree in Software Engineering at the University of Stuttgart. Steffen is fascinated by the quality and extensibility of the Eclipse platform which keeps inspiring him to improve the Mylyn framework.

Robert Elves is a committer on the Eclipse Mylyn project and co-founder of Tasktop Technologies located in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Robert's goal is to develop software that helps knowledge workers manage information overload and improve productivity. At Tasktop Technologies Robert pursues his goal daily, extending Mylyn's task-focused technology to other aspects of the workweek including email, calendaring, web browsing and office document management.
